Clown still sick - what to do?

After much reading, I'm thinking my clown has some kind of parasite infestation. He's not eating at all, looks thin, and just kind of hangs around at the surface. Water changes have made no difference at all. Also, his right eye seems to have some kind of a film over it. So I've been reading about Levacide (levamisole hydrochloride) to get rid of worms. My questions are:

If it's not worms, what is it?
If it's not worms and I use the Levacide, what will happen?
What about the other fish in the tank?
Where do I get this stuff and how much do I use?

Many thanks for any input.
